Down Hill Mountain Biking
The starting platform is located along side Currawong drive in the Baw Baw village and riders are faced with a large table top before disappearing down the old chairlift run. Riders meander in and out of the bush as the tackle log drops, berms, boulder sections, rollovers, jumps and challenging downhill ramps. Australia’s best riders have conquered the 300 vertical metres plummet in just over 3.20 mins.
The main trail will challenge the most competent rider however those not so experienced have the opportunity to bypass the more difficult features via alternate routes. Previously the track has only opened only for events, however this summer it will be open to the public seven days a week (excluding major event weekends). Just pay your $10 trail access fee at the Adventure Hub when you arrive on mountain, and you’re good to go.
A shuttle service back to the village will run every half hour from 10am to 4pm every weekend, riders also have access to bike washing facilities. Please call ahead to let us know if you are heading up the mountain to use the shuttle!
We will only run the shuttle on week days if we have min 4 people (please call us to register your interest on a certain day and we will take down your number to call you if we get enough interest on that particular day).
Our downhill mountain bike track will close at the end of this April 2013, last weekend for the shuttle is the 6 & 7 April.
For those wishing to partake in the sport of downhill mountain biking for the first time the resort offers beginner lessons, equipping you with the skills and confidence required to tackle the descent.
Mt Baw Baw will host round 5 of the Victorian Downhill Mountain Bike Series on the 23rd & 24th March 2013.
The downhill track will open from 8 December 2012 – late April 2013
Our downhill mountain bike track will close at the end of April, last weekend for the shuttle is the 6 & 7 April. Riders are welcome to use the track until the end of April (pay your $10 track access) and arrange your own shuttle.
